Sandplay Therapy is a hands-on, expressive counselling and psychotherapy modality that has been in use for over seventy years. Sandplay forms a bridge between verbal therapy and the expressive therapies, combining elements of each. Sandplay allows the deeper aspects of the psyche to be worked with naturally and in safety, and is highly effective in reducing the emotional causes behind difficult behaviours. With an extensive research and literature base, Sandplay is a powerful therapeutic method for use by established professionals. It has been used with children, adolescents and adults, in schools, hospitals, welfare agencies and private therapy practices. This is the most extensive training in Sandplay therapy available in Australia. Fifteen days over four workshops.

Using an integrative and pluralistic approach, the course weaves together creative arts therapies, person-centred therapy, emotion-focused and somatic therapies. The course is founded on transpersonal perspectives, in addition to trauma-informed sensitivity that creates a highly practical therapeutic approach, based on evidence from research and therapy room outcomes. The course combines theory, immersive experience, skills development, and review of the ET evidence base.


Theoretical foundations include Rogers' Person-centred Therapy, Transpersonal theory developed by Grof and others, Jung's Analytic Psychology, Greenberg's Emotion-focused Therapy, bio-energetics and somatic focusing, implemented through the practical creative arts activities developed by Mark and Helen over the last 35 years.
